This development, a vital process in my education, will help to ensure that I am true to the professional relationship I establish between myself and society as I become a member of the pharmacy community. Integrity will be an essential part of my everyday life, and I will pursue all academic and professional endeavors with honesty and commitment to service. To accomplish this goal of professional development, as a student of pharmacy I should: DEVELOP a sense of loyalty and duty to the profession by being a builder of community, one able and willing to contribute to the well-being of others and one who enthusiastically accepts the responsibility and accountability for membership in the profession. FOSTER professional competency through lifelong learning. I must strive for high ideals, teamwork, and unity within the profession in order to provide optimal patient care. SUPPORT my colleagues by actively encouraging personal commitment to the Oath of Pharmacist and a Code of Ethics as set forth by the profession. INCORPORATE into my life and practice dedication to excellence. This will require an ongoing reassessment of personal and professional values. MAINTAIN the highest ideals and professional attributes to ensure and facilitate the covenantal relationship required of the pharmaceutical caregiver. The profession of pharmacy is one that demands adherence to a set of rigid ethical standards. These high ideals are necessary to ensure the quality of care extended to the patients I serve. As a student of pharmacy, I believe this does not start with graduation; rather, it begins with my membership in this professional college community. Therefore, I must strive to uphold these standards as I advance toward full membership in the profession of pharmacy. * Adapted from the Pledge of Professionalism,developed and adopted by APhA-ASP and the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy Council of Deans Task Force on Professionalism; June 26, iii College of Pharmacy Mission and Values Mission Statement The University of Utah College of Pharmacy supports the missions of the University of Utah and the University of Utah Health Sciences Center.
